Outline for Research Paper

Page one of your  research paper will be your outline.  Please follow this model for the outline:

Outline

I. Introduction (literally the word Introduction)

A.  Opening Remarks/Hook (literally those words)

B.  Thesis statement:  (write it out – state three points)

II.   Point One (write it out in sentence format – this should be the topic sentence of your paragraph)

III.  Point Two (write it out in sentence format – this should be the topic sentence of your paragraph)

IV.  Point Three (write it out in sentence format – this should be the topic sentence of your paragraph)

V.   Rufute the opposition

VI.  Conclusion (literally the word Conclusion)

A.  Thesis statement: (write it out)

B.  Concluding Remarks (literally those words)

Please note that all As and Bs should be lined up. All Roman Numerals should be against the left margin, followed by a period.  Google Docs sometimes is difficult to format. If you are having issues, please let me know.

Always type twice after a period – for this and the entire essay.

After this, insert a page break and begin page two, which will be your essay.  This page should have your header, your heading, your title, and the first portion of your essay.
